Independence Day 2’s synopsis revealed, Constantine officially dead and I am Bread coming to PS4.

Film

C-3PO has a new look for the upcoming Star Wars The Force Awakens. And by that, I mean he’s got a red arm; perhaps in the time since we last saw him he had his arm cut off just like everyone else in that franchise? Or he dipped his hand in some red paint.

The first teaser poster for the Assassins’ Creed movie starring Michael Fassbender has appeared, it’s got an eagle on it. So we’re still going with that motif I guess. Good, keep to the roots of the series.

Independence Day 2 has its synopsis! After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction. 

So, Alien technology makes humanity a little too loud in the universe, aliens come and try to teach us all a lesson.

Television

True Detective Season 2 has a new pair of 30 second trailers, fans of the first season won’t want to miss them, they show off some of the cast, some of the chaos, some of the… detectives?

Daniel Cerone, the showrunner behind Constantine has out and confirmed that the show is officially over, with the team being released from their contracts. This will be disappointing to those who enjoyed the series, but for those who have been following the show, it’s not much of a surprise.

Games

Dark Souls 3 is not only happening, but has had a load of information leaked this weekend, the guys over at Funhaus have all the pretty pictures and the info for you.

I am Bread, the bread simulation game from the creator of Surgeon Simulater, is coming to the PS4, complete with new trophies and game modes, including bagel races.

There’s an exploit in the Witcher 3 that allows you to rack up hundreds of monies in a few moments by slaughtering cows, meditating, then back to the slaughter, well no longer, as the game devs have patched it in the best way possible, it’s called the Bovine defence force, and it’s brilliant.

The first photos of the new young Xmen, a twitter campaign to save Constantine and Five nights at Freddy’s 4 announced.

Film

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel has found its new Shredder in Inception/The Wolverine‘s Brian Tee. The fate of the Turtles’ big bad seemed all but sealed in the reboot, but then this is a comic movie, there was special ooze, and franchises need to be made.

Star of It Follows Maika Monroe has been cast for Independence Day 2 as it starts filming for its summer 2016 release.

Those sneaky on set photographers; bringing us almost clear behind the scenes photos of big films since… whenever it was. Anyway, said photographers have managed to snap some images of the new roster for Xmen Apocalypse which features Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Jubilee (Lana Condor).

Television

If you’re a fan of the NBC show Constantine and would like to see it renewed, now is the time to make your voice heard as it’s in the next few weeks that the studio will be deciding the fate of the Hellblazer adaptation. Jump onto twitter with the hastag #saveconstantine.

Orange is the New Black is coming back to Netflix this June, and before its release there’s a new banner image for the show, you know, promotion and the like.

The plotline for The Flash is heating up, and soon we should get more exposure to that super intelligent Gorilla that we’ve seen teased every so often. And by should, I mean we definitely will because these images of a showdown between the Scarlet Speedster and a giant gorilla have appeared.

Games

It was short lived, but the paid mods feature for Skyrim between Valve and Bethesda has been pulled; with all users who bought a mod getting a complete refund. The statements from both companies state that they realise now that it was a feature that they underestimated, and issue their apologies.

It barely seems like a year ago that the first Five Nights at Freddy’s took the internet by storm… what? What do you mean it was less than a year ago? Well hell. Anyway, the fourth (and final) instalment into the jump scared filled series is coming this Halloween. 

Console Minecraft players, rejoice, starting at some point this week you will be able to play as Alex, a female equivalent to the default Steve skin. When asked about the inclusion Mojang stated that it was to better represent their diverse player base. You go Mojang.

Simon Pegg to Co-write Star Trek 3, the Howling Commandos return to Agent Carter and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel gets a new Playable character.

Film

Star Trek star Simon Pegg, who plays Scottish Engineer Scotty, (Also from Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz,) has been brought on as a co-writer for the third film in the franchise alongside Doug Jung.

James Gunn, director of the summer’s huge hit, Guardians of the Galaxy, has spoken about the sequel to the space adventure. When asked about Lee Pace’s Ronan’s return he denied the villain being in the sequel, though he could make a return eventually (You know how comics can be with death) and when speaking of Nebula, Thanos’ daughter, he said she ‘will be back’.

There’s a new clip for Kingsman: Secret Service available, featuring Colin Firth and relative newcomer Taron Egerton. Check back later today for our review of the film, which is released in cinemas on the 29th of this month.

Television

Here’s a few promo images for Gotham’s episode ‘the Fearsome Dr. Crane’ which will feature a villain who targets victims with severe phobias. Whether this will be the Dr. Crane who eventually becomes Batman’s foe the Scarecrow, or his father…. Well, you’ll need to tune in.

The Howling Commandos, Captain America’s Wartime buddies, will be making an appearance in Agent Carter, after she’s given a mission, she decides to recruit the commandos onto her team. It’s also worth noting that the late Agent Trip from Agents of SHIELD’s grandfather was a commando, and so it’s most likely him we see in some of these images.

It’s been a wild ride for Constantine, the NBC show based off of the DC comic series, it’s been denied a second season, and even got cut off from a full 22 episode season after lack lustre ratings, but after a 12 percent increase in viewing figures, we could be seeing a full series after all.

Games

Borderlands the Pre-sequel is getting a new set of DLC, the first instalment was a Colosseum type mission set that the series loves so much, but this next DLC is a new character, the sister of Sir Hammerlock, the hunter, and she’s got some wicked cool abilities. 

Dying Light’s release schedule is a little confusing, what with digital releases being fine, but physical copies being delayed… so Polygon has surmised it all for you. And as a treat, the ‘play as a zombie’ feature, which acts like the game invasion feature of Watch_dogs, will be free for everyone.

Bungie seem to be listening to the community when it comes to the flaws of Destiny, which no one can slate them on. In an unannounced comment thread on the NeoGAF forum, designer Luke Smith has set some things straight and given us some hope, not only for the next DLC, the House of Wolves, but for Destiny 2.

American Sniper claims the Box Office top spot, Time Travelling Flash and Master Chief Collection Matchmaking gets another update.

Film

The first cast photo for Now You See Me 2; Second Act has appeared, and as well as showing off some new faces (Including Daniel Radcliffe) it also shows off Jessie Eisenberg’s shorter cropped hair. Now this could confirm that we will be seeing a bald Lex Luthor in Batman Vs Superman Dawn of Justice.

Oscar Nominated American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper has broken a bunch of box office records by raking in over $90 dollars in its first weekend. That’s a lot of money.

Add this to the ‘Spiderman’s in trouble’ pile but Felicity Jones, who you may remember played a small part in the Amazing Spiderman 2 as Felicia Hardy (the Black Cat), has recently come out and said that there are ‘no plans’ for her to reprise the role of the character. Which is a shame considering that with the loss of Emma Stone, that series will need someone like Jones to shift it away from being a bit of a boys’ club,

Well this never bodes well, NBC have expressed their doubts that Constantine will be coming back for a second season after the full 22 episode run was denied late last year.

Everyone knew that The Flash would eventually be introducing the idea of time travel in the first season of the series (mostly because the show’s creators told us) well looks like we’ve got a date for our first time travel, the fifteenth episode of the show will see an accidental trip that’s played for both ‘hilarity and darkness.’
